Touki - Modou Toure
Label: ARC MUSIC
Modou Touré, of Dakar, Senegal, plays highly-groovy rhythms; Afrobeat, pop-rock and funk. This album features sharp guitar playing harmonized with drums, bass, percussion and electric guitar. Touré’s voice is powerful and sublime as it soars over energizing, contemporary music. Heir of the legendary group Touré Kunda, the first West African group to achieve worldwide fame in the 1980s, Modou Touré was born into music. His voice strikingly echoes that of his father, Ousmane Touré, who was the inspiration for his choice of career. Passionate about music from a tender age, he was to be found regularly singing up a storm and playing the drums under his neighbors’ windows in the modest district of HLM4 in Dakar, where he spent his childhood.
